About Ryan Staples

“The Beach Boys released ‘Kokomo’ on July 22, 1988, around the same time Mom and Dad finally let me ‘tape’ with the VHS camcorder. Thirty years later, I started KokomoFilm, a filmmaking enterprise and homage to ’88. My work has taken me all over the USA, Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. It is this experience across many projects, locations, cultures, and contexts that I bring to every production, at home and abroad.”

Client Testimonial

“We are a London-based company and collaborated with Ryan three times for live streaming projects and he has always managed to deliver such amazing work. He took time to understand what experience we were aiming for and we were really happy with the outcome every time.

He always came prepared with the right equipment for the experience and he showed up early to the filming location which allowed us to get everything ready for the live stream with plenty of time before the live event started. He also has incredible attention to detail. At all times he set up beautiful shoots with really nice backgrounds. On top of that, each time he delivered the footage to us really quickly which is really crucial for our business.

Ryan is our go-to videographer in Lexington and the surrounding areas!”
